PRESSED GLASS & ROSEWOOD (pair)
Pair of wall lamps by Scandinavian producer in the 1950s – amber glass, brass and rosewood, all in very good vintage condition
PRESSED GLASS & ROSEWOOD wall lamps – 1950s Scandinavian Mid-century wall lights with amber glass, brass and rosewood in very good vintage condition.
This beautiful pair of wall lights, each made up of a thick pressed glass shade, a brass arm and a rosewood wall plate. The glass shades are richly faceted and has a rich amber color with a slightly oily effect in the glass. Underneath the shades sits a circular rosewood piece, which holds the bulb socket. The shades are locked to the bulb socket by a ring screwed onto the bulb socket. The wall plate features an incorporated on/off switch, and the backside is fitted with a plastic ‘hook’ for mounting on the wall. You could also connect them directly to the existing hard-wiring without have to use a plug.
When lit, the glass shades scatter the light towards the sides for a warm ambient feel, while the open top allows for direct light to emit upwards, visible as it projects a ‘cone’ of clearer light on the wall above each light. The beautiful amber tone in the glass slightly saturates the ambiance, creating a warm illumination. Perfect for framing a doorway, or mirror – lining a hall way, or for setting a cozy ambiance in a sitting area or in the bedroom as cozy bedside lights.
A gorgeous pair of sconces with a 100% authentic mid-century feeling and in very good vintage condition – no chips or cracks in the glass. Please see the photos!
All original, but rewired with 1,2 m (3′ 11.2″) white plastic cord – for safety and beauty – and fitted with standard Euro style two-pin plug – which is easily changed to your specific plug. On/off switch placed on the base. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
